Sean Astin joins Cabin Fever: Patient Zero; Brando Eaton and Ben Hollingsworth also infected

Kaare Andrews' CABIN FEVER: PATIENT ZERO has nabbed three of its first castmembers, and at least one of them is a plenty recognizable name: Sean Astin!

That's right, ol Mikey from THE GOONIES (or, if you prefer, Sam from the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy) has climbed about the prequel, which picks up when a cruise ship in the Caribbean collides with an abandoned research vessel and a deadly virus is unleashed. Passengers must then find a way to survive before the flesh eating disease consumes them all.

Brando Eaton ("Dexter") and Ben Hollingsworth (THE JONESES) have also joined the cast of the flick, which was penned by Jake Wade Wall (THE HITCHER).

Shooting on CABIN FEVER: PATIENT ZERO will commence on AUGUST 13th in the Dominic Republic.

I'm not sure what to think of this project (it does come courtesy of the director of ALTITUDE after all), but I do find a certain amount of comfort knowing that there's no way it can ever be as godawful as CABIN FEVER 2.

Extra Tidbit: PATIENT ZERO will be quickly followed by CABIN FEVER: OUTBREAK, which will reportedly begin shooting immediately after the first film wraps.
